Das ist für mich als Fan der Serie, einer der schlechtesten Spiele der Serie.
Wer die Final Fantasy Reihe gar nicht kennt, würde ich dann sagen es ist ein OK Spiel aber auch nur wenn kein Final Fantasy im Titel wäre.

Pro: - Das Spiel ist auch heutzutage grafisch gesehen, immer noch sehr schön anzuschauen (trotz kleiner grafikbugs)
- Viele Speicherpunkte die man annehmen, oder einfach ignorieren kann
- Teleporter ab der Steppe, was sehr gut ist bei den ziemlich langen Laufwegen teilweise.
- Man kann auf einem Chocobo reiten nach einer bestimmten Quest, um so schneller voran zu kommen
- Das Paragdimensystem an sich ist eine nette Abwechslung, als das typische Magier Ritter usw. Jobsystem.
- Recht kurze Ladezeiten, zwischen all den Sequenzen
- Upgradesystem der Waffen und Accessoires, war ganz cool gemacht
- Es gibt viele verschiedene Waffen und Accessoires zum sammeln
- Zumindest bei mir: Kein einziger Absturz im Game es lief wunderbar flüssig durch
- Die Esper (oder auch Götter oder Guardian Forces etc. wie in anderen Teilen) können teilweise Aktiv gesteuert werden im Kampf

Kontra: - Langweilige Story
- Characktere waren ziemlich Lieblos und Stereotypisch gemacht (mit keinem einzigen konnte ich irgendeine Art emotionale Verbindung eingehen, wie zb. mit Cloud, Zack, Prompto oder sogar Noel im 13-2 Teil). Die Hintergründe warum wer was wieso macht war sehr langweilig, das ich das meiste getrost skippen konnte bei der hälfte des Spiels.
- Bestimme Mobs im spiel konnte man nur besiegen wenn man das Spiel regulär durchgespielt hatte. Nach den Credits gespeichert hatte neu lädt den gesamten Weg wieder zurückläuft um die restlichen Quests überhaupt erldigen zu können, weil nur dann der Skillbaum (Kristarium) sein volles Maximum überhaupt erreichen kann. (was für ein kompletter Müll...man macht erst alle sämtlichen optionalen Sachen und dann denn Endboss um das Spiel verdient abschliessen zu können)
- Das Spiel besteht gefühlt zu 80% nur aus Cutscenes...man läuft 2 meter irgendwo hin Cutscene...man sieht eine Cutscene dann kommen noch 2-3 Cutscenes (Der entwicklicher wollte wohl eher einen Film, als ein Spiel rausbringen)
- Recycelte Bosse noch und nöcher, das sieht man zum Ende des Spiels sehr deutlich
- 90% aller Kisten werden von irgendwelchen stärkeren Mobs bewacht und im allgemeinen kann man kaum irgendwo durch ohne zwangsweise irgendeinen
Kampf machen zu müssen.
- FLÜCHTEN wurde komplett abgeschafft. Was eh kein Sinn ergeben würde weil die meisten Kämpfe nicht ausweichbar gemacht worden sind.
- Das Spiel ist extrem Künstlich in die Länge gezogen (3-4 aufeinaderfolgende Cutscenes bei jeder gelegenheit, Das Paradigmen wechseln bis die ihre ganzen Posen durchgezogen haben, unnötig Langezogene Laufwege in Teilweise Sackgassen die keinen Sinn ergeben wieso die überhaupt da sind)
- Das dümmste von Allem: wenn der Charackter denn du steuerst kampfunfähig wird, ist automatisch Game Over (ist ja nicht so als würde ein Heiler neben einem stehen der Engel zaubern könnte) bzw, Alle sämtlichen Flächenangriffe treffen alle Kampfmitglieder...was es absolut Sinnfrei macht einen Tank (Verteidiger) in der Gruppe zu haben der sowieso immer neben dem Heiler etc. einfach stehen bleibt damit auch alle den gesamten schaden trotzdem abbekommen.

Und das sind nur paar beispiele was das spiel für mich Persöhnlich so furchtbar und frustrierend macht.

Fazit: Das Spiel würde ich nicht empfehlen als Fan der Serie. Es kommt mir eher wie ein Prototyp vor, der als Experiment für zukünftige Spiele herhalten sollte. (Scheint so zumindest: am deutlichsten habe ich es bemerkt als man in der einen Cutscene gesehen hatte das Lightning das selbe Characktermodel hat was Später von Noctis im 15 Teil übernommen wurde.)
Für mich zumindest ein Spiel das keinen wieder Spielwert hat wie andere Teile.
Wer diesen Teil mag, ist auch ok.

[h1] Soooooooo langweilig [/h1]

Ich habe wirklich versucht, das Spiel zu mögen.
Auf den ersten Blick macht es einen guten Eindruck.
Grafisch war es damals so eindrucksvoll, dass es sogar jetzt noch relativ gut aussieht.
Es gibt eine große Gegnervielfalt, aber die Kämpfe sind einschläfernd langweilig und entweder nicht fordernd oder durch kilometerlange Gesundheitsbalken gestreckt.
Die Musik ist in Ordnung aber für mich nicht das, was ich mir von einem Final Fantasy Spiel erwarte.
In der Story des spiel geht es irgendwie nur darum, dass man mit seiner Abenteurergruppe, bestehend aus Kindern oder Möchtegernhelden mit Persönlichkeitsstörung, irgendwelchen Göttern oder Regierungstruppen oder zukünftigen Kristallmenschen hinterherläuft. Wobei ich sagen muss, dass ich alle zusammenhänge nicht verstanden habe, da es mit so vielen Fantasiewörtern erklärt wurde, die sich alle so gleich anhören, dass ich das alles nicht voneinander unterscheiden konnte.
So weit ich weis besteht das ganze spiel nur aus Levelschläuchen in denen dauernd Gegner respawnen - zumindest in den totlangweiligen 16,1 Stunden in denen ich das Spiel ertragen konnte.
Technisch macht es auf dem PC einen guten Eindruck. Es ist bei mir nie Abgestürzt, hat nie geruckelt und auch nie lange geladen. Das speichern an dafür vorgesehenen Punkten geht auch superflott.

Es gibt bestimmt auch Leute, denen das Spiel gefällt. Für mich aber ist es absolut nichts. Ich würde es auch niemandem empfehlen. Ich finde es jetzt zwar nicht grenzenlos schlecht, aber wenn ich meine Gefühle dazu Beschreiben müsste, welche ich beim Spielen empfunden habe, wären diese tiefste Langeweile, schleichende Verwirrung und die Verwunderung darüber, wie lang so ein Gang sein kann. Ich glaube, dass man sich so als Bewohner eines Altersheims fühlen muss.
Deshalb:

Vielen Dank für diese bewusstseinserweiternde Erfahrung

Vielleicht sollte ich es jetzt doch empfehlen

Schöne Grafik, tolle Filmsequenzen, toller Soundtrack.....und es macht einfach keinen Spaß. Die Kämpfe spielen sich von selbst und fühlen sich für mich einfach nicht so an, als wüsste ich wirklich, was ich da mache. Die Charaktere sind austauschbar und nervig, einzig die von der Presse geschmähte Lightning weckt Sympathie in mir. Der Rest ist einem einfach nur egal, die Welt ist ebenfalls belanglos, die Level linear und kahl, etc....für mich als FF-Fan eine Enttäuschung. Ich habe jetzt bestimmt 10-Mal angesetzt, das Spiel zu spielen, es geht einfach nicht an mich, schade.

This review is for people who are considering playing this game for their first time. FF XIII is one of those games that gets a lot more hate than it deserves. It is a pretty good JRPG, that has a lot of disgruntled fans mostly from people who didn't finish the game, don't enjoy 3d era FFs and largely had betrayed expectations from a marketing campaign from 15 years ago from game trailers that set unrealistic expectations for this game.

There are a lot of reviews that explain what FF XIII got wrong, but very few that cover why many people enjoy it any way. FF XIII is a JRPG and not an RPG. The difference between the two is that JRPGs are played more for narrative and largely tell the player a story. Traditional RPGs places a player in setting and places a secondary important on story. This distinction is important for understanding what FF XIII is, as this game is mainly about narrative. The best criticism I've ever read is that this is a game that forgot its a video game and not an anime. This criticism is also one of the reason many people enjoy the game, because video games are a different medium from anime and FF XIII tells a story that is easy to get invested in and one that avoids streo typical JRPG tropes like the story about : harry pottter who is on a magical journey to defeat the evel demon king bowser-palpatine ; or the one about two warring states in which the hero must find the 7 dragon balls to stop the villains from using nuclear weapons.

FF XIII is a story largely about a cast of flawed characters who through a series of unfortunate circumstances are cursed by the gods and asked to destroy their world. These characters each start with separate goals and mostly dislike one another. The story is one where characters come to term with themselves, one another and over come their trials. This is a character story and by the end of the game you are more invested in the characters than many other JRPGs I've played. While the story is by no means a master peace, a story about god turning his back on the world and the cast saying F*** you is pretty easy to get behind.

This story is told with amazing visuals (this is a PS3 game that looks better than most PS4 games), a great sound track and what many consider to be FF's best battle system (once you get passed the first 10 hours of the game). So if you are someone who plays JRPG for story content, buy this game and sit back and enjoy the ride. Don't worry about the technical requirements in 2020. I have a Ryzen 1600 with an RX470 (100$ GPU these days) , my computer runs it on max settings 1080P at 60FPS.

Final Fantasy XIII actually still holds up really, really well (I played it through multiple times way back in the day on console). it's beautiful and honestly still looks better than a lot of modern AAA games on max settings. I also prefer the battle system on show here, it is fun and fluid- prefer it more than the combat in XV. Areas can be a little restricted but is nowhere near as bad as some people seem to say.

My only gripe? young Hope- who is quite possibly, the single most annoying FF character ever written (he isn't anywhere near as bad in XIII-2), but yeah- Every moment he is on screen in XIII I want to punch him in his whiny face.

Game minus Hope 8/10
Game with Hope in any scene 2/10

+ Really fun combat system. I loved it!

- As for the story... it's almost as if the game designers just sold me some cheese. There are so many holes in the plot that I am still a little confused as to what was happening (and why). I did read all of the datalogs, but I still have so many unanswered questions.

- The main antagonist 'Barthandelus' is quite possibly the worst villain I have ever seen. His design is just....so....bad. I was so underwhelmed that I nearly just stopped playing the game.

I would say that if you are looking for something kind of mindless to play after a long day at work. This would be a good fit. Anything more, save your money for something else!

The game is cool...but this is the Lazyest port i have ever seen.

----The Good----
-It's XIII...
-Fun as an Turn Based RPG
-Graphics are still beautiful
----The Bad----
-Capped FPS
-Almost no graphical settings
-Why the hell the game is so dark?
-No Brightness nor Audio settings for some reason...

Final Score: get it on console version/10

The story is a mess and the gameplay design has some serious question marks, but with that being said...

The game is no where near as bad as people make it out to be, and has a certain charm and quirkiness to it that kept me going. If your're interested in this game I'd highly recommend you pick it up (like i did).

P.S. Hope was one of my favourite characters, why do people sh*t on him so much? His character development was phenomenal, he starts off as this awkward lil kid who has a hard time expressing himself and turns into a pillar who keeps the group going.

Played this game a million times on the xbox 360 already, and bought it on steam just because this is my favorite game of all time. I always have a hard time finishing games, but I haven't had any issues finishing this one multiple times, or the follow ups XIII-2 and Lightning Returns.

I know this game is seen as one of the worst Final Fantasy games, and I fail to see why. The story, if paying close attention to the smaller details as well, is amazing and I absolutely love it. It's brilliant and not cliche like most JRPGs. It does have it's usual predictable things, but some things were surprising and I loved each and every character and their development along the way.

I'm probably too biased to see anything bad about this title, but that doesn't happen very often for me. Guess that says something too ;)

Only downside about this PC port is that the controls are not very easy to get used to, and I ended up using my xbox controller to play. Also, having a 4k screen, don't expect high end quality gameplay, it doesn't go higher than 1080p sadly.

Final Fantasy XIII is the single most divisive game in the main series often finding itself near the bottom of worst/best lists, despite this FF13 has avid fans and frankly there is good reason for that.

The story, while confusing to start with, is still solid and has some great character development by the end. You can get easily get attached to the cast, and for me personally Sazh is one of my favourite Final Fantasy characters period.

The battle system is amongst the best in the entire franchise, you'd be forgiven for missing this at first glance. It's systems are fine-tuned and well balanced, with a enough complexity to keep interest. Don't be fooled by the auto-battle command, switching paradigms is the core of this system, as are the 6 roles (3 to start) that each character has access to. Effective use of the equipment levelling and upgrading system is also essential for reaching 5 star battle results in the Fal'Cie stone missions (especially Vercingetorix).

As for the common complaints:
Yes the game is linear (which is only true if you want to completely ignore Gran Pulse) but other games in the franchise are also linear (AY, 10, very easy to argue others as well) and the linearity is by no means a valid criticism of the title.

If you're still complaining about the performance in 2020 you either can't read (the thousand messages telling you to use FF13Fix) or your computer is from 2001.

Game is good y'all.

This would be my 3rd time buying FFXIII and also my 3rd time giving the game a 2nd chance. 60fps makes this experience the best one yet. I can't believe this game was made a decade ago. It looks better than even FF7 Remake at times. Maybe I'll beat the game this time around and give a fair review. But so far, it's kind of fun (Most titled FF games aren't fun battlewise until later, it is a JRPG) but way better to look at. Cutscenes and some dialogue are painful but hey, gotta cut corners somewhere right?

Grab it when it's on sale for around $7, it's definitely worth $7.

Final Fantasy 13 is often seen as a low point in the series for valid reasons, although that doesn't at all make this game bad, as the reviews don't do this game justice what so ever. FF 13 changed alot from previous games in the series, implementing a new battle system and different level design along with many small changes.

The gameplay in FF 13 is very divisive with FF fans, as it opts for a more cinematic, real time approach which some fans disliked and others enjoyed. FF 13 also features a lot of third person exploration through its mostly linear environments, although the game does have huge open areas later on. The gameplay is fairly challenging at times, but very visually pleasing. Overall the gameplay can get pretty boring and tedious, though the player is often able to avoid encounters making the game more interesting.

FF 13's story is also a very debated area of this game, as many people disliked the game's more lighthearted, corny tone while other players could forgive this due to the games interesting cast of characters. Although characters like Snow and Hope can be very annoying and unlikable when compared the the rest of the cast, its more than forgivable as their personalities and place in the story are nessasary for the characters' chemistry to work in an interesting way. The story mainly focusses on themes of oppresion, forgiveness, loss, and teamwork. Although this could have been very cliche, the game develops these themes through a very interesting narrative, differentiating the story from anything else. Overall i enjoyed the story and look forward to seeing where it goes in the sequels.

FF 13's Graphics are very impressive even after all these years after its release, with extremely impressive levels of detail, specifically on characters. This game really shines however in its custscenes, as the visuals are simply breath taking, with fantastic cinematography, stellar voice acting, and decent dialogue. Sadly, games proformance is where the experience is lacking, as the game is extremely unstable and make even require patches to get running.

Overall, if you can get past FF 13's terrible optimisation, you will be rewarded with a great story and visually impressive, if repetative gameplay. Overall I recommend you buy this game as a whole, but for some would recommend you simply watch all cutscenes on youtube and move on to 13-2 and lightning returns, as the gameplay becomes extremely tiresome later on.

This is an incredibly divisive game in the Final Fantasy series and for good reason.

World design feels like you're walking down the same corridor over, and over, and over again. Some Final Fantasy games may be known for their linearity but FFXIII reeks of this. The world apparently doesn't open up until the penultimate chapter but at almost 10 hours and six chapters in, I don't have the will to continue playing.

There is very little strategy present in the game's combat system. Even in boss battles, where bosses can generally kill you quickly unless you have the right party members in the right roles. It's not even like you can grind your character to outlevel and breeze through boss fights either because you're level capped for much of the game.

The story doesn't even make up for this either. None of the characters in the story are remotely likeable and that mostly comes down to how dysfunctional the rag-tag group of adventurers are and how for the most part, they either hate each other or see each other as burdens. I originally thought I was going to hate Vanille the most for how squeaky and childish she was, but ironically she's the voice of reason and the most mature character in the entire series...

When a happy-go-lucky and naive teen girl is the most relatable character in your JRPG, maybe it's a sign that Square Enix should have gone back to the drawing board instead of planning a whole trilogy around these characters....

One of the best Final Fantasy Games. I like how it's not just hit and go, it needs people who are more calm and put in the best strategy, however, enemies are not waiting for you to think like most old final fantasy games, which is more exciting.

The plot is extremely linear, it's a corridor: Here is the beginning, there is the end. Let's hold UP button and run in a straight line. The game opens up a bit for very short while really later in the game but that's it.

Playing the game made me feel like a hostage more than anything else, and I just had this feeling that I need to finish it ASAP and move on. I won't this to myself ever again.

The story is a cringe soap opera with full on drama-scenes. The battle system doesn't make sense, why the game is over when the leader dies if there are 5 other characters on your team who can easily revive him/her? If you want to develop your characters, hey farm points and just press X to get stronger. There is no world-map and no freedom to move around. The scenario and dialogs feel like they were written by a 5 years old. The bestiary was another problem for me, the pallet swapped colours with different stats is just lazy..

For me, it's really subpar to any other FF title, sadly.

The most divisive in the recent string of Final Fantasy games, this one is good but not great. The story is somewhat odd, since the first 30 hours of gameplay feel like an extended tutorial with the last big area providing the necessary depth and the full party experience that the game needs to succeed. Characters range from unbearable to somewhat decent, with some exceptionally odd interactions between them from time to time.

Final Fantasy 13 was the first Final Fantasy that i played and finish ,for many this title is the black sheep of the franchise because the combat system is very simple and the gameplay is very linear, but I personally loved the game and it was this game that made me love the Final fantasy series , I personally love the characters and the story, I agree is not one of the best titles in the franchise but it is a very good game and o already finished it 3 times.

This game is a mess and this is the main Final fantasy(and XV)that the series went downhill(except FF14)

Pros
+It looks nice for a ps3 game,especially the cut scenes
+some very nice songs/music
+fully voice acted with Japanese dub as an option.The voice acting in general is quite good.
+ok duration/length
+swapping character roles/classes(medic,sentinel etc) on an instant during battles.
+60fps

Cons
-story isnt presented well at all.There is some interesting lore,but the way the game presents it is so confusing. Unsatisfying ending too.
-characters arent as memorable as in other Final Fantasy games
-linear with the worst pacing in the whole series. You walk a fiew steps,cutscene. You walk a fiew steps again,another cutscene.Basically you keep getting short cut scenes every fiew minutes.
-boss battles arent memorable at all
-crystarium is a bad option for increasing characters stats. Boring and repetitive,especially for increasing other characters.
-side quests/missions are badly designed.
-the combat at first is interesting but gets very repetitive from the start. I never liked the stagger mechanic and wished the summons(eidolons)were better implemented in the game
-no limit breaks
-no armor like in previous FF games. You just equip a weapon and some accessories(like rings/talismans)
-Many re used enemies with different colours.
-not the best performance.

As a fan of the series this is one of the worst for me. Its a game mostly focused on newcomers of the series,at least the way its designed.

5-6/10

[h1]I started FFXIII in 2020 with no prior knowledge of the entry, FF as a series, or the hate that is often linked with XIII[/h1]

FFXIII was next in my list of games after a playthrough of Xenoblade Chronicles and Octopath Traveler, two of my now favourite games of all time. Xenoblade has my favourite story of all time, while Octopath has one of the best battle systems in my opinion.
So you can imagine the massive jolt it must have been to walk from two amazing titles, widely accepted to be masterpieces of gaming, to FFXIII, one of the most divisive and controversial games released on PS3.
See the thing is, I had no idea the game was so hated. I just picked it because it was cheaper than XV, and not an MMO like XIV, so it seemed like a logical place to start in 2020. I had no clue of FF as a franchise, but hey, the graphics looked nice in the trailer…

So as you can imagine, I trotted off the beautifully disguised precipice, hurtling unwittingly into the world of pain known as FFXIII.
At least, that’s how it should have been according to half of the vocal anti-fans of this entry. Like I said, I began the game believing it to be a ‘good’ game, and with no prior knowledge of FF as a whole, I feel that I did so with as open a mind as possible.
It is an undeniable fact though that FFXIII is flawed in many areas, perhaps more than should be forgiven for a game with it’s budget. It does a massive dis-service to itself in the first 15hrs of gameplay, cornobbling the player with it’s most intolerable aspects, making sure to stir up as much hate as possible before it even begins to shine. This initial portion of the game requires almost no skill, and due to the decision to make the game extremely linier with no real NPC interaction or side-content, it feels more like an interactive movie with a single instruction: “Press ‘A’”
The single thing that saved me from giving in to the temptation to unknowingly side with half the FF fanbase in slapping the title of ‘series scapegoat’ on FFXIII, was that I *wanted* to like the game.

So, blind as I was to the massive cloud of impending doom looming over me, I pushed on, and eventually once the game began to feel like an *actual* game, I grew to quite enjoy it.

I found FFXIII refreshingly different from other JRPGs as of 2020 for one simple reason; It is not uncommon to have massive open worlds and heaps of fatigue-inducing side content in current releases, and the linearity of this game actually kept me interested. You don’t have to think about where to go, what to do or what order to do things in. You can just collapse in your comfy chair, unplug your brain and just chill with the game. Nothing is too easy, nothing is too hard, it’s just chill + fancy graphics. Until about the 49% mark when you meet a certain Boss…

BAM!!!!!

The game completely spazzes out, forgetting everything it has led you to believe. Life has been too easy! Now you will be spread across the floor like butter on a hot crumpet. If you have been button mashing instead of playing intelligently up until this point, its-a-gonna-be-a-hell… and it only gets more hardcore.

I truly believe the single biggest flaw of this title is this massive contortion that occurs.

Had the game started off this way perhaps it would have fared better and possibly kept much of the audience from the boredom of the introduction. This sudden jolt in difficulty now only serves to divide players even more as frustration easily sets in. How do I inflict a Break? You never taught me! (Well yes we did, we just forced you to play 20hrs after the tutorial without ever actually needing to use it)

It’s like they designed the whole game with the intention of division.

So that’s it, this is not a deep-dive into the Lore and cast of FFXIII, or the intricacies of the battle-system, but rather my overall impression of the game.

Do you sense that I am confused with my feelings?
That’s because I truly am. I really enjoyed the game, but it clearly has MAJOR issues.

Would I recommend the game?
hmmmmmmm….

Let me ask you this: Do you want to like the game?

Got this for my birthday about a decade ago for the PS3. At release I think this game was unnecessarily over-hated. Despite being linear; with patience, great battles and an epic story shall unfold. One of my favorite titles in the series ever since, highly recommended.

Final Fantasy XIII is probably the only game that I both hate and love playing.

Biggest issue with the 1st half of the game is that the gameplay suffers a lot due to the storytelling. While I don't mind the story, it's still mind-boggling that throughout the majority of the 1st half, you only get to control 2 party members at a time, which seriously gimps the combat experience. Even though I did not grind and just played normally, the game still took way too long to convey its story. Quite a few chapters take forever to finish due to how many enemies you have to fight. Since you still don't have a full party for many of these chapters, the time you spend in combat is also massively lengthened.

While the game does open up at chapter 11( which is after 20 hours of gameplay), you shouldn't expect a drastically different experience. You still go down linear hallways one after another. However, this is the point where the game finally lets you fully utilize the combat system.

You get access to pretty much all kinds of spells and abilities from this chapter forward. Most importantly though, you can finally control a full 3-member party with no restriction set on you. The flow of the combat once you have access to everything feels very fast and satisfying. You pretty much press X nonstop while also think on the fly on how to approach a combat encounter efficiently. It's surprisingly heavy on the macromanaging aspect instead of the micromanaging that you would expect in a typical JRPG. It encourages you to think ahead on what you need to do when you encounter all the different kinds of enemies. The implementation of the Active Time Battle system in this game is well crafted and probably the most refined of all Final Fantasy games.

It's still kinda hard to recommend. Its ups are very high but it can also be quite a mind-numbing slog. You should only get this game if you're going to commit about 40 hours to it.

My first FF back in 2010 on Xbox despite already being 18, it's a great game with a phenomenal soundtrack. The combat system is a unique blend of real-time and turn-based showing the evolution of the FF series and the story is engaging enough. Many people may complain about the single pathed aspect of the first 60% of the game, but I still enjoy it all (and I concede that nostalgia plays a factor in it).

Don't expect the best 10/10 experience, but you'll still enjoy your time if you like FF/JRPGs.

Just finished it! Wow, what an amazing game. Yes, it's linear, but I liked that. It was relaxing to play in bed on my laptop, not having to read a guide to make sure I didn't miss anything important. Every day I'd be excited to just keep playing. There's lots of FF staples that are missing - no safe towns, no overland map, etc - but if you see FFXIII as just a game, and not pre-load all your Final Fanasy expectations on it, then you'll like it.

I played FFX-2 right before this and there's a lot of gameplay similarities - being able to jump between height levels, a full-action combat system and switching between roles. But I hated FFX-2, but everything was much more fleshed out in this. The PC controls are different to FFX and FFXII, and took a little getting used to, but they aren't bad.

The story is very much tied into the game, and there are a LOT of cutscenes. Enjoy them, they are beautiful. Read the datalog whenever you get new information - I think they put some key info there to not slow the game down for those who didn't care, but I find it's important when you don't know anything about the setting yet.

Give the game a shot. It's a beautiful, fun, piece of art.

Although this game has shortcomings in plot and gameplay, it is far from being unenjoyable. The characters are interesting and charming (well, not at first maybe, but later in the game for sure lol), the worlds - although linear - are beautiful and different. I won't lie that there are things about the game that detract from enjoying it: a datalog containing most of the missing context of the plot that the cutscenes fail to convey, no overdrives and Summons/Eidolons that you pretty much will never use because they do not get the job done, no leveling up but instead a grid-like FFX leveling system, and yes, the linear map with only ONE area that you get to peruse in an open-world fashion while being unable to visit previous locations making every treasure there missable.

But its strong points? The soundtrack, the graphics, the voice acting, and yes, the gameplay. FFXIII introduced a new mechanic to the battle system: paradigms. You basically set up your party with the roles you want each character to be, make different set ups, and switch them during battle. It brings a new challenge - a strategic one, that forces you to learn how the monsters you fight respond, teach the AI how to fight the battles, and switch things up to end the battle as quickly as possible. Some people might not like that, but it's honestly one of the more interesting aspects to this game. Considering how most of the side-quests involve getting a five-star rating on each battle, it's definitely important!

But it's not for everyone. Don't get me started on the sequels. Don't worry about the sequels, just focus on the first game of the installment and enjoy it as best you can :)

Tedious. Masochistic. Well done square, I guess.

Visuals are great, the characters are good, the story is cool. The combat is ridiculous. No combat should take over 5 minutes (sometimes 10) of repetition, what kind of assholes made this game?

Here's the thing, it's linear, meaning your not wasting dozens of hours of your actual life traversing a meaningless 'open world' because it's a thing. Cool, actually. Thank you. However, this game is basically a bunch of battles that are actually puzzles, that you at some point have to actually solve; it's stupid, srsly. Otherwise the game is pretty good.

Tedium, lots and lots of tedium. I don't recommend it but I will because the battles (which suck) actually feel like a precursor to FF XIV which is absolutely and without question; Awesome.

I have a love-hate relationship with this game, and after several years, I finally feel I've come to terms with what it is, and while it's deeply, profoundly flawed, I can't help but recommend people temper their expectations and try it.

I initially played it on PS3, and like many I was annoyed with the removal of towns, the linearity and corridor environments. Years later, I understand that there's a coherent vision behind that controversial design. It wasn't 'gutted because of Xbox DVDs' as some claimed (these people clearly never played Lost Odyssey), it was designed that way. In a game where you play as fugitives, of course you won't be able to kick back in a town. Of course your whole world will feel like you can only push onwards into the claustrophobia. I get it. I know what they're doing now. But it's still not that fun, and it's only made more frustrating by FF13's constant grinding tutorialisation and pacing issues, and plot points that fade in and out of focus, and lack of variety in gameplay loop and sidequests, and the railroaded character progression, and and and...the problems go on and on.

But if you approach it knowing it's linear, knowing it's got issues, and pick it up at its low price, it really can be a rollercoaster. The game looks phenomenal on PCs at 1080p and above, like a constant wallpaper generator. After a PC replay, I decided to skip postgame content, the game's lustre had worn off for me, but it's become a cheap interesting curio worth picking up on sale, and it paved the way for XIII-2 which I enjoyed a lot more.

I had previously owned this game and wanted to replay it on steam but, this game is clearly not optimized for PC. The game is arguably one of the worst FF games but, I personally like this game. The reason I am giving a bad review is purely for the reason that this game is unplayable depending on your gpu. It is very picky and specific. It has frame rate issues and crashes in the middle of combat making it impossible to progress. Their are fixes online but, none of them worked for me. Honestly if you plan on buying the game make sure you don't have an amd gpu and even then it still might not work. This is really sad and I hope it gets fixed but it probably won't. Get a 360 and buy a copy of the game if you want to play this. Really disappointed.

This is actually a good Final Fantasy game. It's just different. This game received a lot of hate at release and probably still gets it primarily for not being a conventional JRPG. It was mostly linear but that changes at around 70% of the game. I believe that developers wanted to give a different narrative so that's why they decided to keep majority part of the game linear.

Battle system received criticism because people didn't liked the idea of auto battle but I think that this game focus in battle was on entirely different thing. It focused on paradigms (kind of job system) and required player to have ideal set of paradigms to fight the enemy. And besides the battle animations are really beautiful.

Now the story is one of the attribute of the game which I didn't liked at all when I played the game first time. It felt to me that the story wasn't personal enough or wasn't dramatic enough. This time I replayed it and realised that the story is not bad actually. I was comparing its story initially with FF X in which everything was told to us on the spot but in XIII there is some lore related to God and Fal'cies which we have learn ourselves. This lore is named as 'Fabula Nova Crystallis'. And it isn't just clearly told to players probably on purpose. I read online that it is explained in its sequels, as I haven't played them yet.

Overall this is quite decent and enjoyable game. I plan to complete the whole trilogy to understand the overarching story of the lore.

You will dump 2 or 3 hours at a time for many different days, all to keep having game breaking re-occuring problems. Steam wouldnt refund even though the 14 hours i have accumulated are basically the first 1 to 3 hours until the game is completely broken. I tried 13 fix , moving d3d9.dll all the misc files to try and move to FFXIIIMG.exe , all the things, and the game always locks up , then freezes, then goes BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR and i have to control alt delete , log off windows . It will not even let you quit with alt f-4 , ending task. This game is truly a nightmare in the sense of trying to climb a ladder made of pure warm butter.... and you only have 10,000 feet to climb. #ThisGuyIsntReal #playonps3

Many people love or hate this game, the truth is that this is a good game, just not a good Final Fantasy. Nevertheless, I am recommending this game to JRPG fans, just don't expect that much.

Pros
+ Nice story;
+ Gorgeous graphics even to this day.

Cons
- Another lazy port by Square, nothing game breaking though;
- Worst ATB combat system I've ever seen;
- Auto-Battle, yes;
- Linear maps with straight corridors 99% of the time;
- You'll get full health after every battle;
- The game only gives you access to the Levelling System at Chapter 3, all monsters killed before that were for nothing;
- Shifting Paradigms take a couple of seconds and you need to do this a lot every battle;
- Besides, monsters don't drop Gil;
- You'll only be able to upgrade your gear near the end game or even at the post game;
- The game has a Bestiary for you to complete, but it never tells you there's no New Game Plus and once you've beaten a Chapter you'll never be able to return to that map again;

I can't believe I haven't write a review for this game, lol. Look this game gameplay is weird cause they didn't let the monster drop gil and the only way to get gil is by defeating monster and hoping they would drop item that you can sell, and that's one of the many reasons why I got 68.8 hours on record, probably will play it until it hit 69, lol. But despite all of that, I love this game and the trilogy with all of my heart and I want Lightning to punch me in the face

There is a lot of hate surrounding Final Fantasy XIII but I honestly enjoyed it quite a bit. The most common complaints about the game is its linearity, but you get to explore quite a bit of open world once you get to the latter half of the game. For a game that came out in 2009, the game is extremely gorgeous and beautifully rendered. The combat leans towards being strategic rather than action since you can't manually control your character's movement, but it is fun in its own way. Also being a Final Fantasy title the music definitely did not disappoint.

My only gripe with the game is probably that the characters' personalities felt very weak and that it had a rather confusing story flow.

Overall, very decent game and would recommend. 7/10

We all have our favorite Final Fantasy game and this is mine. Combat is fast, has depth, and requires you to mess around with weapons and accessories. The game plays out on a very strict path but because of the story it makes sense as to why it does that. Some characters are a bit annoying at first but each of them has their story fleshed out by the end. I love this game and I try and play it once every year to remind myself about the important stuff tackled in this game.

I've platinumed this game on Xbox 360 back when it came out and I intend to platinum the PC version eventually as well. I absolutely love the combat and the paradigm design of this game and I love the versatility of most of the characters in combat after accessing Gran Pulse. The amount of min/maxing you can do is fantastic for an elitist like me and honestly if you like min/maxing and reaching incredible numbers as well as going for ridiculously hard trophies/achievements this game is for you. On top of being a fantastic Final Fantasy game that is (Thank you Square Enix). This is my favorite of the trilogy and it will always hold a special place in my heart as Lightning's character progression is truly beautiful in 13-1. I just wish the game didn't receive such backlash for Lightning having a similar personality to Cloud. I highly recommend this game it's pretty good and Square Enix cutscenes are always a treat.

A huge improvement over FF XII. I was very surprised by how much I enjoyed this game - more for the story than the fighting mechanics. Plenty of interesting characters, a coherent story, and gorgeously inventive environments. Pretty sure I eventually turned on CheatEngine or in-game assists (or both) to power through the story.

It's definitely not for everyone, and this port basically requires you to seek out a fanmade .ini file to make it function.
However, this game contains what I consider to be a very fulfilling variation on traditional Final Fantasy ATB battles, removing focus from the minute details and expecting the player to make overarching strategic choices.
Only consider playing through this game if you're very, very patient.

Being one of the most critical discussed games within the Final Fantasy franchise I belong to the fraction who enjoys the 13 trillogy. Is it a good game? Yes definietly but sure not for everyones taste. The score is just insanely good and the gameplay is really intuitive. Sure the game is really linear but that issue gets resolved during 13-2 and LR, at least to some degree. And ofc the visuals, considering the game originaly came out 2009 the visuals are really stunning. ne of my issues I had though with the pc version is that the change between cutscene and gameplay framerate was kinda irritating for me.

Now the other question, is it a good Final Fantasy game? Thats imo up to debate but I understand people who say it isn't. If you only ever played 13 the pacing is awful and half the cast is forgettable and annoying. Taking all three games into perspective I actually think though it is a welll told story.

I know a lot of people hate on this game, but I am enjoying it so far. Aside from the constant crashing that is. Other than that, the story is good...not great, but good.

If you played it on PS3 when it released and didn't care much for it, then you're like me. I gave it another shot, and I'm glad I did. It's aged really well, and I think it's easier now to appreciate it for what it is. Yeah, it's a departure from FF formula, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It's unique.

Did this game back then on 360 ; had hundred of hours on it.
At first the game seemed pretty boring, didn't liked the fact i can't do whatev i want and run around in the world map, until i reached pulse, the game let you way much more do what you want.

I still don't like Snow and Lightning in this opus (they are way better in the two others in my opinion), but always happy to redo this story.
- I sometimes have some fps drops there and there but nothing too much ; Some mods are pretty good too.

When it comes to mainline entries, this was the one where I thought Square may have gotten carried away. Since the game was done without Hironobu Sakaguchi overseeing it (he dropped out during 12's production), it remained to be see if the game would keep Square going. And it somehow did, to where it produced a trilogy of games (outdoing what 10 did with 10-2, and Tactics with its spinoffs). But how is the game?

To put it simply, it's a game that is perhaps the most linear out of the Final Fantasy titles out there. Its battle system is dynamic, and you will be fighting a myriad of enemies who have various weaknesses or strategies needed to conquer them. The addition of an 'Auto-Battle' option is more 'take the game's recommendations for actions in combat rather than decide your own'. But more often than not, this option lets you cheese fights to a point.

How is the leveling? Well, you cannot grind in this game until near the end of the game. And even then, the game has a system in place to prevent cheaters from doing so. The system used to build up character stats/roles WILL hit a wall at some point and require you to endure the story until the next tier unlocks. This is a big change from prior Final Fantasy series because you could grind to max level anywhere you wished, learned magic and skills with enough time/effort, and you could cheese the game from then on. And if you wanted to cheat, you could use a trainer or a cheat engine to make that possible. But not in this game. You can get so many stats/skills/magic until you have to continue story mode. And the game will DEFINITELY push you to keep as much as possible.

As for the story, I strongly recommend that you don't take any breaks. The reason why is because the story, and the characters, make it real difficult for you to follow if you don't play this game straight through. If you play it for a few hours, come back to it weeks or months later, you'll probably have a hard time recalling anything significant. The characters are a mixed cast but do get better.

Graphically, it looks great. And you do have the options of adjusting AA, resolution, and shadow detail to alleviate some pressure on your video card.

Music is also a wonderful listen.

While it isn't a bad Final Fantasy, it is mixed. I definitely recommend getting it during a sale (which happens a couple times a year easily and you can nab this for a few buck).

Crashes at chapter 3 with rdna cards. Have to fix it with fan made patches. Kind of a big pain in the butt, but works pretty well after doing this, and I'm enjoying the game so far.

Sometimes coming back to a game years later can give you a new perspective. I gotta think it must be tough keeping a long running series fresh for old fans and exciting for new fans threading a fine needle. FF-13 at it's core isn't a bad game in fact I think it's a good game with a new battle system that threw many off is it a perfect game no by far but the sum of its positive and negative's add up to a great Final Fantasy game. The corridor nature turned many off and its restrictive leveling and party building is another notch in its negative camp however if you can look past that there is a beautiful story of strife and remorse, hope and friendship that's why I'm giving Final Fantasy XIII a thumbs up for JRPG and Final Fantasy fans who might have skipped over it or those who are curious all these years later.

Gave it a try again after writing it off a decade ago.
- First 20 hours are bearable when you know what you're in for. The characters grow subtle but some are
much more fleshed out than others. Sazh is easily the best character in the game.
- Open Gran Pulse area is pretty cool but I at it's core it's completely barebones, it only gets a pass because
it's unlike the rest of the game.
- The endgame after that is literally the same boss over and over again with a different model, if getting attacked non stop and being unable to outheal it whilst putting up with random 1 shot moves thrown in whilst tackling overly bloated HP enemies with upgraded weapons and gear sounds like fun, pick it up.

Gameplay wise, mostly endgame, this game has to be Square at it's lowest.

I'll say it: Thirteen (or something) year old Starfish was a hater. The game is actually really good; it is actually just a better version of FF X. People seem to think the story is trash, but the simple story between Snow, Hope, and Lightning is great in my opinion, how does a little kid who thinks his de-facto new guardian just killed his mom act on his emotions? The other character stories and interactions are also pretty good, but Hope takes the cake. The rest of the main story is pretty standard for FF despite the anti-crystalism bender SE was on at the time.

The linearity that people talk about is no worse than FF X and is also simply a by-product of SE wanting to tell a very specific story. The story they want to tell necessitates them splitting the party for almost 70% of the main story, and with a split party comes boss fights that have to be killable with specific combinations and therefore the linear nature of the crystarium (sphere grid/license board equivalent). I don't think this is bad though, I had a lot of fun with all of the content even before the party reunited just learning and using the battle system. The post game mark missions (FFXII styled bounties) also have some great battles that really force you to turn the gears of the battle system.

One unfortunate thing about the battle system however is the distillation of the traditional jobs into six rather pathetic shadows: Commando, Ravager, Synergist, Saboteur, Sentinel, and Medic. Each role does EXACTLY one kind of thing so that the AI can efficiently handle the class changing and operation of two AI in the paradigm shift system. I think the system was very fun to use and worked great, but the lack of traditional job identity is disappointing regardless.

The game has great gameplay and story, I can't not recommend it. Hope's character story seems to be the object of incredible disdain in common critiques of the game. I simply have no idea how, but I guess it just goes to show how experimental this game is for a Final Fantasy game. If you are hesitant about picking it up for $16, wait until it goes on sale for $10 like it frequently does.

PS: I remembered how godlike the ost is after I went to listen to the Black Disc that the game's battle themes virtually forced me to buy. The bgm is top notch, on the tier of Shadow Hearts, SMT, and so on. I also initially forgot to mention that this was ported when SE still had that awful bug where the game constantly stutters looking for a controller if one isn't plugged in. So either use a controller, leave one plugged in while you use keyboard and mouse, or fix it with the mods available.

Great game if you want something linear to play while you watch someone on the second monitor.

If you like getting every achievement, Instead of purchasing the game use that money to pay someone to punch you in the face repeatedly. Whoever made Treasure Hunter should be sectioned under the mental health act.

There's a reason why recent steam reviews rank this game very positively, it's just like Sonic Unleashed, the game was hated at launch but later on people realised it was actually a good game.
I read online reviews of the game saying it was too linear for them and I was making a gamble whether I'd hate this or love this, and I loved it.
It doesn't feel like a hallway simulator (except from chapters 3 and 4 which are pretty much the only things i dislike about this game, minus the difficulty spike in Gran Pulse) and there is an open world area at chapter 11. The graphics are stunning for a 2009 game, even at the lowest possible settings. Just be wary of performance; if you want a consistent 60fps you'd need atleast one of the best gtx 1000 cards or any gtx 2000 series card, but even on a gtx 970 the 30fps is not an issue when you have these amazing graphics. The battle system is probably one of the best variations of the ATB system used in most FF games and it makes you feel like you're truly involved without having to wait for your turn while still catering to turn based fans.




actually there is one thing I do hate, Vanille's constant moaning. I can't play this game around my parents.

Hands down my favorite out of all the numbered titles in the series. If you think the game is too linear, just keep in mind that PSICOM is a military group, ShinRa is an electric company. Comparing walking around the slums isn't the same as being on the run when everyone on the planet knows your face.

It's linear, but on purpose. Graphics are ahead of its time for 2009 and are still top notch to this day.

Postgame feels like an afterthought, but the core game is excellent. Would recommend to new and old players of the FF series.

I have been loving this game for the most part, But i cannot in good conscience recommend it to anyone on steam. This port is absolutely horrendous. It crashes during several cutscenes and even just during combat itself. The amount of work each individual has to put in to make this game work just isn't worth it when 20 hours down the line it starts to crash again but you've already done everything you can to fix it. I will most likely be buying this game on PS3 and playing it on there, and I recommend everyone else to as well. Do not buy the steam copy, save yourself the headache.

Overall, I liked the game. Gameplay felt like FFX and FFXII had a baby, and it was fun. The story was good and I cared about the characters.
However, there are some things I'd have to complain about, such as the fact that the game essentially plays itself for you. Everything is automatically set up and you can just sit there, beating enemies by spamming a single button. The Paradigm system is interesting, but it didn't feel like Final Fantasy to me. Also, the fact that I had unlimited MP, was instantly healed after every battle, and couldn't control my party members save for their roles are some of my complaints. It made the game feel a bit too simple and easy, but again, not my least favorite Final Fantasy. 8/10

Literally unplayable on newer AMD cards without patching. Not an exaggeration - the game begins crashing in Chapter 3 and while there are (imperfect) fixes available, the fact this is an issue at all is something anyone considering the game should be aware of.

This is by no means a bad game per se, but simply does not live up to the Final Fantasy name. This fact is well reflected both here and in metacritic ratings as being by far the least popular mainline FF game.

Pros:
Gorgeous graphics - Playing at 4k, I definitely found myself just staring at the screen from time to time
Excellent music - One of the better soundtracks of recent FF games, even if it can't live up to some of the classics
Combat system - The paradigm system is quite unique and takes some getting used to, but I found it quite fun and engrossing

Cons:
Combat system - There's a somewhat steep learning curve, and the game designers decided to handle this by making the first 20 hours of gameplay a tutorial. *facepalm*
Uninspiring story - The story isn't bad, but falls far short of what is expected for a Final Fantasy game. It doesn't help that the story is half buried in the datalog.
Bland characters - Their personalities range from bland to cringe-worthy. It's a shame because the character designs are awesome, especially Lightning
Buggy - I got a lot of random crashes at 4k, and the enemy datalog entries are bugged above 720p (see https://steamcommunity.com/app/292120/discussions/1/606068060836189580/). I usually don't like to harp on technical issues, but for a game where shininess is the major appeal this is a big problem.


A lot of reviews will mention linearity as a problem. Linearity by itself isn't an issue; FFX is quite linear and is one of my favorites. The problem is that the linearity in this game is very poorly disguised and there's none of the expected payoffs in terms of character or story.
